I have a netherland dwarf and believe me on this, they are great! My rabbit was in the past abused. When i got her my neighbor who got my rabbits sister, said" Toastie (my rabbit) is known to bite, scratch, and growl. From what i see she just needs love like humans do. Treat animals with care especially rabbits. I suggest if you want a pet to get a netherland, they are the best friends and pets you will have, dont hold back research then go get one. They are great for being pets in show and mostly an everlasting friend even when they are gone. They are great with other pets even my dog gives Toastie kisses on the nose. They are also great with all ages even parents.

I have 5 in a 30 gallon tank. They are all within 6 to 7.5 inches (their max size is greatly reduced if they are in a smaller tank.) I have had them for about 7 years now. They have grown hand friendly and will try to nibble on it every time I do something in the tank. They will eat any food whatsoever. Frequent water changes are not critical in my opinion. Sometimes I would not change the water for months and they did fine. I used a small canister filter (fluval 104) and the water stayed clear except for some waste on the bottom. They are extremely hardy: survived two moves, power outages, not being fed for a week, etc, etc. They seem to be somewhat intelligent, but not as intelligent as predatory fish. For example: I have been feeding them floating cichlid pellets for years, and they still have difficulty picking out the ones at the corners of the tank (even though they see them and circle around them).

I bought them because I wanted to have large fish with big eyes that were hardy and did not need too much looking after. They totally lived up to those expectations. However, after 5.5 inches, they started looking more like food than pets (this is a comment that I often get from those who see them for the first time and I agree). They are vicious plant killers, it did not matter whether I fed them cucumbers or not, they would still go after plants for the sport of it. This is the biggest problem with these fish. Do not hope to have any live plants if you are getting them (unless you are putting them in a pond :)). Also, they will eat a smaller fish if they can catch and swallow it. If it doesn

Mini Lops are kind and sweet. But you must handle them gently
because, like all rabbits, they are fragile! Mini Lops have long ears and soft fur. They can come in all different colors. You may see your Mini Lop leap in midair and do numerous twists.
Do not worry about this because this is an expression of happiness.
It is called a binky. Mini Lops can jump very high, so be very cautious when you put them in low places with no ceilings! Despite all their troubles, these rabbits can be very loving creatures. They
are quiet and love timothy diet hay. Mini Lops are an excellent choice as a pet. Good luck to all you new rabbit owners!!

I have a little bookshelf tank around 2-3 gal. I just put one eater in and in one day has cleaned every bit of algae off of everything! He is very very active and likes to swim in circles. this is by far one of the most fun fish I have to watch!

I have kept bubble eye fishes and strongly recommend them to all fishkeepers. They are fascinating fish and give plenty of enjoyment. Have only had two problems:

1. Acquiring different coloured species

2. Bladder problems which result in dropsy and swimming problems.

I have a Nanday Conure called Toby. I got him from an old lady who didnt want to give him away but had to because she couldnt let him out of his cage because of her dog. he is always coming out of his cage nowadays and he loves to go outside and sit with me in my aviary.

Rabbits are not "great for children". Children are often loud and rough with their pets. Rabbits are prey animals and this type of treatment terrifies them. In addition, too many people get their children rabbits as "starter pets" assuming their child will take care of it not realizing that rabbits live between 8-12 years. This means that the parent will be taking care of the rabbit when the child has gone to college. Also once the novelty wears off and the child loses interests, often the parents do not want to take on the responsibility and they either dump the rabbit on a local shelter where it will probably be euthanized or dump it at a local park or golf course where it will be the meal of a dog, cat, coyote or some other animal because domestic rabbits are not prepared to survive in the wild.
